Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738567051, Paperback)

While hard to believe today, the banks of the Kentucky River were once home to bustling port villages and popular excursion destinations, the most popular of these being High Bridge. Local communities supported businesses that brought commerce to the area up into the early 20th century. However, with the expansion of the railroad, the days of the steamboat faded. Eventually automobiles outmoded the railroad and, over time, drew away from the winding highways along the river to more modern roads, a death knell for these riverside havens. This book will take you on a pictorial journey along the river through Tyrone, Oregon, Mundy’s Landing, Brooklyn, High Bridge, Camp Nelson, Valley View, and Clays Ferry. Along the way, it will introduce the interesting residents and visionaries that breathed life into these communities and helped to create their unique charm.
